I headed into town yesterday on the DART - I bought a three day pass having happy thoughts of buzzing up and down on the line and stopping at the little seaside towns along the way...hummph...the ticket machine ate that pass this morning...I think I put it in when I shouldn't have and after it happened I realized a barrier was open and I could have gone through there (this was at the end of the journey),...ah well...at the time I wanted to kick the damn barrier but figured breaking my foot wasn't going to solve anything.
I headed from Connelly station over to the River Liffey...my first stop was at the handsome Customs House...
From there I visited the Famine memorial on the North banks of the Liffey...very poignant...the Potato famine occurred from 1845 to 1849. At that time lots of immigration to North America occurred.

|All those books! Though I don't think I'd find any my beloved murder mysteries in that lot do you?|
|In Dublin fair city where girls are so pretty....well I am sure you know the song!|
Then it was on to St Stephens Green....a lovely park in the middle of the city.
By now I was dying for a cuppa so on the way to find a cafe I took some photos of the colourful doors...
At this point I decided to head out to Howth but that's another post. I hope you enjoyed coming along with me...what a fabulous day it was!
